I imagine people are Ivies are just smarter and therefore tend to have better softs, better LSAT, better writing, etc. to get them into better law schools.

I can guarantee you that a 4.0 from an ivy is viewed differently than a 4.0 from a poorly regarded or unknown school.

See page 36: ... report.pdf

The bias toward highly regarded schools will only get stronger in the T14.

Ivies, yes. But the difference from, say, Georgetown University to Craptown State U isn't going to be a significant except as a tiebreaker.

There is significant grade inflation at Ivy League schools. That being said, it's too difficult to compare GPAs across schools.

169 will put in in play Cornell, Georgetown, and Michigan

170-171 for some of the other lower T14's (Duke, UPenn)

172 puts NYU into likely territory

173+ for Chicago and Columbia.
